Lift and pitching moment data were obtained from airfoil surface pressure measurements and drag data for wake surveys. For these reasons much effort and research has gone into the design of aerodynamic surfaces which delay flow separation and keep the local flow attached for as long as possible. A combined effort based on large-eddy simulation and resolvent analysis on the separated flow over a NACA airfoil is conducted to design active flow control for suppression of separation.

One airfoil had an additional constraint for low pitching-moment at the transonic design point. It was concluded edsign Some new developments relevant to the design of single-element airfoils using potential flow methods are presented.

Advanced technology airfoil research, volume dezign. The results are compared with those of the family related 10 percent thick supercritical airfoil Wing-mounted superfans can reduce fuel consumption and engine tone noise. Applications to high lift airfoil design are also demonstrated.

On the other hand, the time-averaged objective function requires additional steps in the adjoint approach; the unsteady discrete adjoint equations for a periodic flow must be reformulated and the corresponding system of equations solved iteratively. Inventor ; Kidd, Reggie T. The design and development of an in-draft wind tunnel test section which will be used to study the dynamic stall of airfoils oscillating in pitch is described.


A streamline curvature method for design of supercritical and subcritical airfoils. A coupled system of the integral boundary layer and the Euler equations is solved to provide rapid flow simulations. The two primary objectives of high maximum lift and low profile drag have been achieved. Most of the tests were made with air at room temperature.

The flight data consist largely eppller drag measurements made by the wake-survey method. An airfoil includes a leading edge, a trailing edge downstream from the leading edge, a pressure surface between the leading and trailing edges, and a suction surface between the leading and trailing edges and opposite the pressure surface.

Airfoil shapes based on the flow field characteristics of the corrugated airfoil were built and analyzed. Computer-aided mathematical models for predicting metal flow and stresses, and for simulating the shape-rolling process were developed. A percent-thick, slotted, natural-laminar-flow SNLF airfoilthe S, for general aviation applications has been designed and analyzed theoretically and verified experimentally in the Langley Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel.

Also considered were thickness, pitching moment, and off- design behavior. This paper describes two computer-aided design CAD programs developed for modeling the shape rolling process for airfoil sections.

A series of results for which comparisons are made with the known airfoils is presented. Based on perceived contributions to improving engine efficiency, the fan blade was chosen as the primary application for a more detailed assessment. With regards to wing twist, it was decided that a simple flat wing was a reasonable compromise.

Airfoils permitting extensive laminar flow, such as the NACA 6-series airfoilshave much lower drag coefficients at high speed and cruising lift coefficients than earlier types-of airfoils if, and only if, the wing surfaces are sufficiently smooth and fair. A multi-element airfoil system includes an airfoil element having a leading edge region and a skin element coupled to the airfoil element.


In aerial firefighting, the performance-boosting airfoils have helped the U. Typically, five iteration cycles are required for convergence. The experiment was directed toward evaluating the compatibility of LFC and supercritical airfoilsvalidating prediction techniques, and generating a data base for future transport airfoil design as part of NASA’s ongoing research program to significantly reduce drag and increase aircraft efficiency.

The first procedure to develop a redesigned airfoil used a weighted average of the shapes of two intermediate airfoils redesigned at each of the two design points.

A percent-thick supercritical airfoil based on an off- design sonic-pressure plateau criterion was developed and experimental aerodynamic characteristics measured.

Airfoils are generally designed for a specific flight condition and, therefore, are not fully optimized in all flight conditions. The thin airfoil blade is designed and calculated by blade element and momentum theory.

Airfoil Design and Data

A theory was developed; an eight-stage axial-flow compressor was designedconstructed, and tested. Development of a design model for airfoil leading edge film cooling. The detailed viscous analysis of airfoils having finite trailing edge pressure gradients demonstrates a reduction in the strong inviscid-viscid interactions generally present near the trailing edge of an airfoil.

Three new options were incorporated into an existing computer program for the design and vata of low speed airfoils. A method is presented for designing suitable thickness distributions and mean camber lines for airfoils permitting extensive chordwise laminar flow.
